Last year, the space flight was largely successful. China first in the history of mankind put automated spacecraft on dark side of the moon, a NASA probe New horizons flew past the most distant object ever visited by artificial means of transport. A Japanese spacecraft has twice collected samples from the surface of the astroid and using the shell created an artificial crater. the Private company SpaceX launched a new manned spacecraft to the International space station without a crew, but at least launched it. And besides, there was the first prototype of the "starship" of the American company. Despite all these successes, in 2019 were also various "failures". Magazine "technology Review" (Technology Review ) summarized five major space failures in the...

Humanity before littered space that alien invaders several times will think before to pass through this barrier. After all, tiny chip at high speed turns into a projectile, whose kinetic energy is capable to disable any spacecraft. Space debris – a familiar phrase, but not everyone knows what it means. The facts are that over the last ten years in orbit appeared two times more garbage than it was before . Space debris is any objects launched mankind into orbit and lost fitness. The number of such objects in orbit (rocket stages, fragments of skins, parts of broken satellites), has exceeded 60 thousand, their total mass is approximately 5 000 tons. the Previous estimates of space debris was produced in 2001. No one could have expected that just a few years...

In early January 2020 from the spaceport at Cape Canaveral launched the Falcon 9 rocket. Elon musk does not leave the idea of creating a global Internet, access to which is to be carried out even in the most remote corners of the planet. So, a two-stage rocket from SpaceX went into space, carrying on Board 60 satellites Starlink. Another portion of the mini-satellites will be integrated into the global network of Internet coverage. the Feature of the Falcon rocket series is the ability to return the first stage to the launch pad. During this run the part of the rocket after 8 minutes came back to the platform on the coast of South Carolina. the Satellites Starlink was taken to a height of 290 kilometers. Further spacecraft with integrated ion engines will...

For a Long time is a European producer of missiles, "Arianespace" complained that his American competitor "SpaceX" received illegal support from the U.S. government. Now the Americans strike back and asking for help from the administration trump. Before the center of U.S.-European trade dispute was the export of automobiles, and punitive tariffs. Now with the problems faced and other area: U.S. company "SpaceX" has accused several of its foreign competitors in violation of competition. This statement also affects European company "Arianespace", which produces the rocket "Ariane". In two letters to the U.S. Department of Commerce, the representative of the company "SpaceX" Stephanie Bednarek complained that subsidies distort the market of launching...

Program CHEOPS is designed for more detailed study of known exoplanets. Thus it will be possible to learn something about their mass, density and perhaps even about their atmosphere. For readers of science fiction has long been clear: in the universe, of course, there are countless planets. But we astronomers is known for certain only since 1990-ies. have Since been discovered thousands of so-called "exoplanets". Unknown, what are these planets, if they have any atmosphere or any life. Therefore, the program CHEOPS is to examine some of the exoplanets that have already been discovered. the Measurement light intensity of stars Characterizing Exo Planet Satellite CHEOPS stands for "Characterizing Exo Planet Satellite", i.e. the companion to the study of...

The Number of satellites that SpaceX plans will be sent into Earth's orbit, is 5 times greater than the total number of launches since 1957. Modern scientists came to the conclusion that commercial companies should stop to fill space Internet satellites. According to astrophysicist David Clements (Imperial College London), the creation of global networks, satellites can have a negative impact on the study of deep space . the consideration of space through ground heavy duty telescopes in the foreground detected by the mass of satellites. But distant quasars, located on the edge of the Universe, or potentially dangerous asteroids remain undetected. A scientist warned that a large number of space objects can be a primary danger for astronomical research...

During magnetic storms meteodependent people are one of the most terrible and horrible trials in their lives. On them rolls intolerable apathy and laziness, they have pretty bad mood and significantly decreases efficiency. In magnetic storms, it seems that life around stops and simply no longer interested. What can you do? What must be done to meet this terrible period prepared? to begin To understand what this phenomenon. Magnetic storm occurs as a result of certain changes which occur in the magnetosphere. While their formation is influenced by solar flare activity. The Sun's energy affects the entire planet, and it is not surprising that many people are experiencing in their body and feeling some changes. The strongest magnetic storms in January 2020...

At the conference of foreign Ministers, NATO also wants to declare a space war zone. The Alliance is concerned about the vulnerability of the satellite infrastructure, as protection from attacks in space at the present time is hardly possible. If the events will develop according to the scenario of NATO space in the future may become a theater of war. The plans of NATO defense Ministers appeared in June, when it was first adopted space strategy. It provides for the preservation of technological superiority of NATO over other countries, such as China, and the protection of infrastructure in orbit. This is justified by the fact that at the present time in the cosmos there are about 2,000 active satellites, which, in addition, perform important military tasks....

Russia took a decision to return to negotiations about participation in the NASA project to create a lunar station Lunar Orbital Platform—Gateway, said "RIA Novosti" the General Director of "Rosatom" Dmitry Rogozin. Earlier he said that Russia would abandon the project due to a lack of a big role in the project. "We have confirmed his American colleagues ... that we are ready to participate in the negotiations. Extremely important for us here is not only issues related to hardware, but primarily with our principle,"— said Mr. Rogozin. In September 2017, the United States and Russia signed the agreement on intentions on creation of a lunar station, Deep Space Gateway. Later the project name was changed to Lunar Orbital Platform—Gateway. According to...

Russian meteorological satellite "meteor-M" lost orientation due to external impacts, said the report "Roskosmos". In the apparatus according to preliminary data, was hit by a micrometeoroid. the Incident occurred on December 18, 2019, but previously, it was reported. On the apparatus "meteor-M" № 2-2 occurred "extraordinary situation", then the characteristics of its orbit have changed and he began to spin rapidly. As a result, the satellite lost orientation. After that, it instrument automatically enters power saving mode: most on-Board systems are down. Also stopped working the instrument, which was designed to achieve the primary function of the satellite. Source: RBK.RU

The spacecraft "Cockpit" private American company Boeing was unable to dock with the ISS as planned. After it starts having problems that were associated with the burning too much fuel. Test flight of a space capsule that Boeing has developed for manned space flight North American space Agency (NASA), was unsuccessful. After start from the cosmodrome Cape Canaveral "of Starliner" went down the wrong rate on the International space station. For this reason, the unmanned capsule reached the ISS. This was stated by representatives of Boeing and NASA. First, the administrator of NASA Jim Bridenstine wrote on his Twitter page that the capsule is on a stable orbit around the world. However, there was a drive failure, required to reach the ISS. May be responsible...

December 22, 2019 the day of the winter solstice. After this, in the Northern hemisphere comes the astronomical winter. the Winter solstice is an astronomical phenomenon in which the Sun is above the horizon at noon is at its lowest altitude above the horizon. The solstice is the moment in which the angular distance from the Sun to the celestial equator is greatest. this moment in the Northern hemisphere, astronomical winter begins, the day will gradually increase and decrease. But before this starts, we are going to live the longest night and the shortest day of the year.

Former astronaut of the National office for Aeronautics and space research (NASA) Gregory Harbaugh commented on the cancellation of the Starliner vehicle dock with the International space station (ISS). "Good for flight crew," he wrote on Twitter with irony. The Harbor in the years 1991-1997, he made four space flight on the American Shuttle, including a visit to the Mir station and repair the Hubble telescope. the astronaut Also listed the emergency situation that occurred with the Cockpit at startup. In particular, he pointed to the absence of maneuvers at a given time to propel spacecraft into orbit and incorrect orientation of the ship. Earlier, the management of NASA has cancelled planned for December 21, 2019 the Starliner docked with the ISS...

Twice Hero of the Soviet Union, pilot-cosmonaut Boris Volynova age of 85 years. He was congratulated by the Governor of the Moscow region Andrei Vorobyov and Director General of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin. the Gala event was held in the House of cosmonauts in Star city. Volynov was included in the cosmonaut "Gagarin set", was the commander of spacecraft "Soyuz-5, Soyuz-21" and orbital station "Salyut-5". He made the world's first docking of two manned spacecraft. In 1960 along with Yuri Gagarin Volynov created Star city. the Astronaut shared his memories from his first flight into space. "When I first took off, I was overwhelmed with emotions over the edge, making the dreams when you've grown some wings," he was quoted by the TV channel "Star". "Man with...
